The Audio-Technica AT831cW is a miniature condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It has been designed for hands free applications in sound reinforcement systems, and for use by professional musicians, especially for pickup of acoustic guitar. The AT831cW provides improved gain before feedback that normally cannot be achieved with miniature omnidirectional microphones. Close up voice and instrument pickup are crisp and clean, yet full sounding, while suppression of background noise is significantly improved over that of stand mounted full size cardioid microphones.

This model AT831cW has been specifically designed for use with Audio Technica's Wireless Transmitters.

      This is the mic we got to go with the ATW 2110 body pack system we use at our church. It works great; very true sound, and unlike the mic we used to use, doesn't significantly lose sound level when he turns his head from side to side. I'd tried to convince him to use a headphone mic to remedy that problem in the past, but he prefers a lapel mic, so we got this one, and it seems to have solved the problem.

              I used this mic for pastors officiating weddings and other public speaking events. Excellent gain before feedback. I would recommend this highly over the AT829CW. Minus one star for flimsy cord. Take care wrapping it and handling it and it will perform great.

                Replacement because the wires get wrapped around the transmitter by people trying to be "neat" and they damage the cable. Very nice to be able to just replace the mic w cable.

                  This is an excellent mic for church use. This purchase was made as a replacement for one that has been used for years and it was just time to make it the backup mic. I have always been extremely satisified with Audio Technica mics.

                        We purchased this as a replacement for the mike that came with the wireless system. The reason I rated it 4 stars is that I thought the cord did not hold up well (it broke after two years of minimal use). However we have been extremely pleased with the performance of the mike and the system. Great price, great service, fast delivery from B&H.

                        We use these mics for sound reinforcement in a wide variety of live events. They are simple, dependable, good-sounding microphones. However, the cord is a little fragile, but any cord this small is going to be fragile.

                            I use this mic with an ATW-T1801 transmitter and an ATW-1801 receiver as one wireless system for video recording. The primary events are weddings and corporate events. The mic is a little bigger than I would prefer, and it is bigger than the mic that came with another ATW-1801 system that I have. But, overall, it does the job that I need done.
